Leoci’s Trattoria to Open Soon!

“It’s going to be a casual,  affordable neighborhood cafe,”  says owner,  Chef Roberto Leoci, who with his wife,  is currently hard at work renovating the little restaurant at 606 Abercorn.   There will be a spacious outdoor deck along one side and around the back, plus they hope eventually to have a bocce court.  The menu will be Italian,  primarily pizza, pasta and panini. However, when we mentioned our passion for veal, the chef said he might add a nice veal scaloppini to the mix.  Leoci already has his beer and wine license approved, so that obstacle course is over. He hopes to be open in just a few weeks, though we suspect the extensive renovations may take a bit longer than that.  Buon appetito!

Meet Chef Diego

I discovered Chef Diego at a recent dinner party.  Chef Diego is a personal chef and caterer specializing in Italian cuisine.  He hails from North Italy, and after years cooking aboard the yachts of the rich and famous (Sharon Stone and Robert Dinero to name a few), he has settled into Savannah.  I was treated to his Eggplant Parmesan…(the best I’ve ever consumed, .a pasta medley with zucchini, and a veal scaloppine with mushrooms in a white wine sauce.  All of which he will gladly show you how to prepare.  One thing he won’t share…his award winning recipe for Tiramisu…but I consider myself honored for having tried a bit.   Hungry yet?  Take a look at this spread…
